Lets not forget, when prophecy scholars stated decades ago (as far back as the 1950's) that Europe would come back together in the form of a "United States of Europe", it was laughed at and scoffed at because the notion seemed so absurd back then. Lets not forget, WWII was still a recent memory at that time, and the idea of countries such as France and Germany coming together in any way seemed ridiculous.
Yet, since that time, we have watched the EU come together progressively in more and more ways and the signing of the Lisbon Treaty just put the process into high gear. Not only have we witnessed the growth of the EU into 27 countries but its outgrowth into the Med Union further revealed its growth and influence.
WIth the financial crisis we have seen even more and more central control to the point where commentaries and discussion points have centered on the loss of sovereignty for the member states.
Daniel 2 and 7 clearly describe a regathering of the Roman Empire in the last days before Christ's coming - all that remains now is the 10 Kings stage which will represent the final stage of the EU's transformation. The 10 Kings will somehow produce the antichrist as he comes from the 10 Kings.
As a brief reminder, one can turn to Hal Lindsey's "Late Great Planet Earth" and see where the exact term "United States of Europe" was used to describe this union (I bet Mr Lindsey would have liked to have this article in his possession as the scoffers took aim back in 1970).
Now we have this article:
The United States of Europe: A Proposed "Economic Government" Would Integrate Europe To A Degree Not Seen SInce The Roman Empire
Are you ready for "The United States Of Europe"? The integration of Europe is about to go to another level.
As the European debt crisis deepens, there are cries all over the EU for full economic integration in Europe.
On Wednesday, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel sent a letter to European Council President Herman Van Rompuy which stated that they want a new "economic government" for Europe to be formed.
According to the letter, Sarkozy and Merkel want the leaders of the eurozone countries to "elect" a president for the new "economic government".
A whole lot of "experts" in Europe are proclaiming that without full economic integration and the creation of "eurobonds", Europe is doomed.
The next part of the article sounds like it came directly out of yesterday's post regarding how crisis=change.
This is often how huge changes occur in our world today. First a huge problem is created, then there is a negative reaction and then a solution is presented to us.
Right now in Europe, the problem is the sovereign debt crisis. We are being told that the only way that the eurozone can survive is if all of the countries agree to much deeper economic integration.
Exactly as predicted.
Nigel Farage was also deeply critical of the new proposal by Sarkozy and Merkel....
Bit by bit, eurozone members are losing their sovereignty as the European superstate is created. Nothing in these proposals will calm the markets. I am also prepared to bet that the European political elite will not ask the permission of their peoples via a referendum to make this happen.
But Sarkozy and Merkel seem unconcerned about the critics. In fact, they have announced plans to have a common corporate tax rate by 2013 and to coordinate work on their national budgets.
That represents yet another development. So now the EU is proposing that this small central group would control the nation's national budgets. That is a shocking development even for this prophecy watcher.
So if the leadership of the German and French governments both want deeper economic integration for Europe, will anyone else in the eurozone be strong enough to resist it?
This article gets even more interesting below, and the prophetic significance is amazing:
In the end, however, the real goal is to unite the entire world. Regional governments such as the EU are seen as an intermediate step toward a truly global government.
Did I just read that correctly?
As I have written about previously, the globalists hope one day to have a truly global economy that uses a new global currency.
In a recent opinion piece, former EU bigwig Javier Solana made the following statement....
Truly effective global governance is the strategic horizon that humanity must pursue today with all its energy.
It sounds difficult to achieve, and so it will be. But it has nothing to do with pessimism. The challenge of governing global risks is nothing less than the challenge of preventing the “end of history” – not as the placid apotheosis of liberal democracy’s global victory, but as the worst collective failure we can imagine.
People like Solana truly believe that if we can eventually unite the entire world that it will bring in a new era of peace and prosperity.
Many of them believe that if they can get the world to form 10 or 12 "regional unions" first, eventually they will be able to get all of those regional unions to form one giant global superstate.
Wow. This one renders me speechless.
Take a look at the closing statement and just consider the prophetic implications:
But as we have seen in the past, the larger the governments get, the worse the tyranny tends to become. Setting up a "one world government" may seem like a good idea to some people, but the truth is that it would set the stage for greater oppression than we have ever seen before.
Those that love liberty and freedom should be 100% opposed to a "United States of Europe" and they should definitely be 100% opposed to a "one world government".
This has been one of the many theories in terms of what the 10 Kings will actually be. The idea of 10 Unions, each with a "King" - all who serve the ultimate leader, the antichrist is one explanation.
And we cannot forget, the EU, on their main website already has 10 such unions in play:
Most of these unions are already formed or in the process, and a North American Union, if formed, would represent the 10th.
This might be a good time to go back and see what a literal interpretation of biblical prophecy has been saying about our generation - as written decades ago: "Things to Come" by D. Pentecost and of course Hal Lindsey's "Late Great Planet Earth" would be good places to start. The literal interpretation of biblical prophecy has been incredibly accurate for over 50 years, confirming what we already knew.
It is days like this - when you see an article so highly prophetic that you just shake your head and ponder our amazing God - a God that does indeed know exactly how things will transpire, according to His plan, and as an incredible act of love and mercy, He gave us this knowledge in advance - so that we would be prepared for what is to come. More importantly, so that we would also get excited about our upcoming date to be with the bridegroom - Jesus - in person - a fact that is intended to give us hope and encouragement in these dark days.
Things are happening very fast right now. It won't be long now, as we approach the final days of this generation.
This is the time to pray and worship in earnest. The bride should be prepared for the coming of the groom.
Maranatha! He is coming soon!
The first thing I heard on the FOX radio this morning was, "Israel is under attack"
...5 killed so far...Is this the beginning of war? We need to be praying!
Sorry I also ment to comment on your concluding remarks Scott, very true and very encouraging... AMEN!
I haven't heard about this but I did hera on Fox news that that Sarkozy and Merkel were talking about a group of twelve within the union coming together and guaranteeing the debt of those who are struggling in the EU. This morning Germany said no to that deal bringing the group proposed to 11. We are seeing the groundwork ofr the ultimate 10 nations of Europe rising right before our very eyes.
Also just now FOX is reporting that Pres Obama has just now asked Assad to step down. With this announcement the opposition to Assad will approach a frenzied state and we will see Assad more desperate than ever.
With this said I believe that Assad is really going to try to pull Israel in to a conflict defering the attention away from him having to step down. Before he had options, now he has only one to stay in power. What he does next is the key.
If anyone has heard of any of what I or WVBORN has mentioned please let us know. Also your insight on where we go from heere would be welcome.
WV, I saw the story about Israel being attacked on the Today show this morning. That story and Scott's new post about the consolidation of the EU are kind of spine tingling.
On a related note, I watched the documentary "One Day In September" last night, about the Palestinian terrorism at the 1972 Munich Olympics. I had seen it before years ago, but the world's general disdain for Israel really hit me last night. With two Israeli athletes dead and nine others held at gunpoint in the Olympic Village, the games went on for good a portion of the day and many athletes just went about their business as if nothing was happening. I seriously doubt the reaction would have been the same had the hostages been American or German.
God bless all.
Here is an article about the attack in Israel:
BTW, can anyone tell me how to create hyperlinks in my posts?

Power cuts threat as sun storm hits earth
Thursday, Aug 18 2011 6PM
A huge mass of electrically-charged particles thrown out by a gigantic eruption on the Sun is due to strike the Earth tonight.
Scientists expect it to trigger one of the most violent geomagnetic storms ever recorded.
The result could be widespread power surges and even blackouts, disrupted TV and mobile phone signals, and broken down communication satellites.(cont'd)
P.S. Thanks to WEDG for the link.
BWest said... "...BTW, can anyone tell me how to create hyperlinks in my posts?..."
You mean like this?
Yes, exactly like that. Thank you for the link to the linking instructions.
Love you guys..My Christian brothers and sisters!
Well, things are certainly looking "interesting" for the up-coming month, and beyond...
Let's see... We have:
California attorney Orly Taitz has filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus, which would require representatives of the Hawaii Department of Health to appear in federal court Sept. 14 to "show cause" why Taitz should be prevented from seeing whatever original 1961 "birth" documents the agency has kept from the American public...
And Bad O-man's buddies from ACORN are planning a 'Day of rage' to 'bring down the stock market' about the same time [Sept. 17]
Wall Street targeted for Britain-style riots...
That's great timing for a "distraction" to keep his legitimacy issue off the map...
Especially if it's done while we're all in the dark!
After all, judging from what goes on in other countries like say, USSR, if "they" pulled the plug and blamed it on the Sun... who's to say otherwise??
And if the ME pot boils over -- too much to take it all in!!
Mean while, waiting in the wings...
"...huge breakthrough in the coming 666 Surveillance System as a Skin Tattoo
DrNo - add to those dates:
- Sept 20, a direct vote by the UN on a "PA State"
And, Sept 27 Elenin will be in another alignment possibly causing more big quakes.
September could be very interesting
Call it the American fall. I don't remember when so many significant events converged at the same time.
News Article Power cuts threat as sun storm hits earth
A huge mass of electrically-charged particles thrown out by a gigantic eruption on the Sun is due to strike the Earth tonight, possibly causing power surges and knocking out TV and phone signals
Forgive me, but I beleive this article is from October of 2003...not 2011..I searched the headline on their site...
Mrs C --- I don't know about your link - but we are in the midst of many such 'storms' over the next fews days, so if we are to get one later today/tonight, it wouldn't surprise me
Hi Scott, :) I know that we are experiencing the results of sun eruptions, however the above post suggests that this would occur tonight, and the above provided link from unnamed "anon" is for a article dated 10/29/2003.
Also read a board that listened to the "NASA" conference, and they only spoke of their new technology for tracking the solar storms/flares. I was concerned that folks would read the above article and perhaps lets say...panic :)
I remember reading about the cycle we are now in, about four years ago, and yes indeed the intensity of these solar flairs will increase. Its known as solar maximum—the high point in the suns approximate 11-year cycle of activity. Scientists expect stronger storms around solar max, in 2013. Some have said, and expect it to be much worse than the 1859 event...
Among all the crazy stuff in the world life goes on...
I will be a first time grand pap to little boy any day now...
I have tickets to WVU vs. Marshall opening college football game so tune in to espn sept 4 and you may see me there... :)
and am heading to the outer banks NC Sept 10 for vacation...I kinda hate being away from home in mid sept but God is in control..
Maybe this is why the rest of the world does not see what is really going on....too many distractions...it is going to hit many like a ton of bricks
WV - where are you going?
We used to go to the outer banks a lot but haven't been in a few years now,
Scott said... "DrNo - add to those dates..."
Ahaa! You thot I overlooked some items ... and I thot I wuz emphasizing the dizzying array of events that are overloading my neural-net proces... ooops, no, I really am just human...
Scott we are going Emerald Isle...my wife says thats not the outer banks? I thought it was. We are going with friends who booked it.
I know - you were just testing me to see if I am keeping up :)
Sept is going to be huge IMO.
Its very close, but Emerald Isle is on the NC coast - very nice, you'll love it !
Hart, How are you doing? With prayers to our Great God that you have an extra blessing of His peace that passes all understanding. --Sharon
